Bowling Green Marsh up to lunchtime

When I arrived at 0845 the Temminck's Stint was on far side of the pool, best viewed from hedge gap before the hide, and to the right from  open bank area with yellow flowers at rear. Seemed to keep  to the right hand narrow fringe of mud  just bordering the reeds. not always easy to see as feeding in between reed bases at times. Still in same area at 1400 when I left . A Spotted  Crake showed briefly close by the stint several times, and another was reported later am from the reed fringe on the left near the Redshank roost area so probably still two here. Ruff still present and one or more Spotted Redshank in morning tide  roost.
